"The Final Frontier" album was hugely successful in all the Nordics, having landed at position No. 1 on the charts in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland. In Norway and Finland it remained No. 1 for 3 weeks and in Sweden, after being No. 1 for two weeks, dropped to No. 2 before returning to No. 1 again! It was also MAIDEN's fourth consecutive No. 1 album there and third in Finland. The CD is already platinum in Finland and gold in Sweden and Norway.
Fans are advised to move quickly if they wish to buy tickets — last time (2008) the two stadium shows, Ullevi Gothenburg (53,000) and Helsinki's Olympic Stadium (45,000), sold out in just a couple of hours.
